Author, journalist, gentleman of letters. In my twenty plus year career as a writer I have contributed to major magazines, websites and newspapers while also finding time to write three books and to write and present a documentary for the BBC World Service. After a while I expanded into brand and marketing, and have launched and edited multimedia thought leadership platforms for Gartner and Indeed, while also doing brand work for IBM. Storytelling and narrative are what I do and I love creative collaborations. I've lived in radically different cultures (Scotland, Russia, US) and had several careers, and all of this has informed my creativity.
